DPT Clinical Rotations
Third year DPT students are finishing their third clinical affiliation at the end of this fall semester. This charter cohort has one more clinical internship to complete before their graduation in May of 2017.
The goal of the Trine's clinical education program is to graduate students ready for entry-level physical therapy. Every student is required to complete a full-time clinical affiliation in an acute, outpatient, and chronic setting prior to graduation. Trine dedicates 34 weeks of it's curriculum to full-time clinical education with a four-week rotation in the summer, two eight-week rotations in the fall and a final fourteen-week rotation in the spring prior to commencement.
Several members of the charter class elected to do clinical rotations outside the Fort Wayne area. Students have traveled to neighboring states such as Michigan and Ohio, while others have selected to practice PT in states such as Colorado, California, Florida, Georgia, Texas and Alaska. The wide range of clinic settings will prepare our students to become well-rounded entry-level physical therapists.
